Abstract

A total of 780 patients were operated on for lithiasis. Among them 97 presented multiple urolithiasis which was often associated with Schistosoma infection. Bilharziasis, in accord with theoretical considerations, plays a part in the formation of calculi, especially in that of multiple urolithiasis.
